Kickoff for that contest is scheduled for 10 a.m. in Spartan Stadium. Although scoring opportunities were harder than usual to come by, some of the Spartans’ typical offensive standouts did manage to muster some points for their squad. Junior Quarterback/WR Wrentie Martin connected with junior Wideout Zach Johnson for a long score in the first quarter. The subsequent 2-point conversion try was unsuccessful. The other score for the Spartans came on defensive side of the ball, when sophomore OLB Carmine LaManna came up and made a nice hit on the opposing ball carrier, and forced a fumble. Junior Defensive End Justin Cina who’s relentless pursuit to the football paid off for him, as he was able to scoop the loose football, and return it about 20 yards for a defensive score. On the 2-point attempt after the score, the junior QB/WR tandem of Zach Ryan and Wrentie Martin connected once again, when Ryan was able to find Martin in the back of the end zone to complete the 2-point play.
